Zombie Evolution!

I love this image!

A playful take on the classic (and wrong) image of human evolution. No matter how we try to get beyond the “rise of man” story, it comes back, zombie-like, even when it should R.I.P.

Hat-tip to John Hawks, who tweeted about the delightful Tumblr site, AnthroFail, where zombieevolution appeared.

AnthroFail has some other great ones – perspective, sovereigntyordeath, and essence of anthropology students.

You can also get this image as a t-shirt
– and a selection of other Zombie t-shirts too – on Amazon.

  1. Why is this classic image of human evolution (without the zombies, that is) wrong?

      Well, for starters, the March of Progress suggests that hominid evolution was a straight line from knuckle-walking ape to modern human and not the complex, branching path full of dead ends that we now understand it to be.
